Today marks the completion of the Six Peak Challenge (climbed 6 peaks in 60 days) with my final peak —Picacho Peak in Tucson. This by far was one of the top 10 highlights of my life! It feels amazing to conquer this mountain with a twisted network of steel cables, requiring gloves, upper body strength and strong legs in order to make the vertical climb to the top. Terrifying yet exhilarating!
This day also marks the one year anniversary of my knee surgery (ACL reconstruction) and four months post shoulder surgery.
I’m so blessed to have made a new lifelong friend, Mario, who was also completing the six week challenge, on this amazing  journey.
